The Art Junket

A gathering of artists

Category

Salons

Artists are given a challenge every two months to create a NEW piece of work that incorporates a designated theme. We find that having parameters and accountability help motivate and inspire us. Salons last three to four hours and are often hosted by in a member’s home. During this time each artist shares their artwork and reflects on their creative process. Feedback is welcome and supportive. We also take time to enjoy a small lunch together.

The 2nd Salon* of the 3rd series of The Art Junket was hosted by Ana Perches.

The Salon was attended by 13 artists: Erin Mahollitz, Katie Strange, Maureen Fitzmahan, Tony Jones, Brian Nelson, Tao Graham, Randolph Torres, Annelise Dohrer, Ana Perches, Katie Osenga, Lucy Beck, Zoey Olbum, and Kate Sbani.

This months’ theme, Genesis, inspired many of us to do a reexamination of our work and our work process.  For those of us who have been around for a long time, I believe that our work has reached new heights. We have many new members.  The diversity of work and members is seen in the kind of art being produced.
